Synopsis

Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas’s masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

Review

I was a little afraid of this second book since I didn’t like the first one. Well, don’t be afraid, I loved this one. I found everything I liked in Sarah J Maas, and it must be said that Rhysand is still much nicer than Tamlin. I’m not even talking about Mor, Azriel, Cassian or Amren.

Feyre came back to Tamlin after being tortured, she made a pact with Rhysand and has to spend one week a month with him. It’s been three months and he still hasn’t asked for anything. Feyre is locked up in Tamlin’s house, the latter gives her almost no freedom and she is withering away at a glance. Feyre also discovers that she has powers that are not hers and does not know how to deal with all this. Nobody helps her, neither Tamlin who does not take care of her and considers her more like a possession, nor Lucien who, despite his attempts, still lets himself be threatened by Tamlin. And I’m not talking about Ianthe, the priestess who does as she pleases and thinks she’s a queen.

When the union between Tamlin and Feyre finally arrives, Feyre is praying for someone to save her and it is Rhysand who arrives as the knight he is.

The first week at Rhysand’s is complicated but nevertheless Feyre rests, thinks about it and she still doesn’t trust him and tells everything she has seen and learned to Tamlin and Lucien when she comes back.

The day Tamlin locks her in his house is the day he has gone too far, everyone realizes it but him. He does not understand that after being locked up and tortured under the mountain, the only thing Feyre wants is his freedom. That’s when he loses the fight in the eyes of Feyre even though for me he had lost it a long time ago.

This volume is mainly the one in which we discover Rhysand, Mor, Azriel, Cassian and Amren. She understands what they are fighting for and she will train to help them.

I loved Feyre in this volume, her sensitivity that doesn’t stop her from standing up to Rhysand.

Rhsyand is my darling since the beginning and I can say that I am not disappointed, he is absolutely great, he wants to be protective but he holds back because he loves Feyre and he knows that she needs her freedom. He gives her a choice in everything she does and he even lets her make decisions.

The relationship between Rhysand and Feyre evolves gradually, they are so much made to be together that I find it too slow but at the same time I love these moments.

I love Mor, she’s absolutely great, she has a strong character but that doesn’t take anything away from her charm.

Cassian is also adorable, I absolutely fell under her charm.

Quick Word: A second volume much more interesting than the first one.

Chronique

J’avais un peu peur de ce livre ce second livre vu que je n’avais pas aimé le premier. Et bien n’ayez pas peur j’ai adoré celui-ci. J’ai retrouvé tout ce que j’aimais chez Sarah J Maas, et il faut dire que Rhysand est quand même bien plus agréable que Tamlin. Je ne vous parle même pas de Mor, Azriel, Cassian ou Amren.

Feyre est revenue chez Tamlin après avoir été torturée, elle a passé un pacte avec Rhysand et doit passer une semaine par mois avec lui. Cela fait trois mois et il n’a toujours rien demandé. Feyre est enfermé dans la demeure de Tamlin, ce dernier ne lui laisse quasiment aucune liberté et elle dépérit à vue d’œil. Feyre découvre aussi qu’elle a des pouvoirs qui ne sont pas les siens et ne sait pas comment gérer tout ça. Personne ne l’aide, ni Tamlin qui ne s’occupe pas d’elle et la considère plus comme une possession, ni Lucien qui malgré le fait qu’il essaie, se laisse toujours menacer par Tamlin. Et je ne parle pas de Ianthe, la pretresse qui n’en fait qu’à sa tête et qui se prends pour une reine.

Lorsque l’union entre Tamlin et Feyre arrive enfin, cette dernière pris pour que quelqu’un la sauve et c’est Rhysand qui arrive comme le chevalier qu’il est.

La première semaine chez Rhysand est compliquée mais malgré tout Feyre se repose, refléchit et elle ne fait toujours pas confiance à ce dernier et raconte tout ce qu’elle a vu et appris à Tamlin et Lucien à son retour.

Le jour où Tamlin l’enferme dans sa demeure est le jour où il est allé trop loin, tout le monde s’en rend compte sauf lui. Il ne comprend pas qu’après avoir été enfermée et torturée sous la montagne, la seule chose que Feyre veut c’est sa liberté. C’est à ce moment là qu’il perd le combat aux yeux de Feyre même si pour moi il l’avait perdu il y a bien longtemps.

Ce tome est principalement celui où faire découvre Rhysand, Mor, Azriel, Cassian et Amren. Elle comprend pour quoi ils se battent et elle va s’entrainer pour les aider.

J’ai adoré Feyre dans ce tome, sa sensibilité qui ne lui empêche pas de tenir tête à Rhysand.

Rhsyand est mon chouchou depuis le début et je peux dire que là je ne suis pas déçue, il est absolument génial, il a envie d’être protecteur mais il se retient parce qu’il aime Feyre et il sait qu’elle a besoin de sa liberté. Il lui laisse le choix dans tout ce qu’elle fait et il l’a laisse même prendre des décisions.

La relation entre Rhysand et Feyre évolue progressivement, ils sont tellement fait pour être ensemble que je trouve ça trop lent mais en même temps j’aime ses moments.

J’adore Mor, elle est absolument géniale, elle a un caractère bien trempé mais cela n’enlève rien à son charme.

Cassian est aussi adorable, je suis absolument tombée sous son charme.

En bref : Un deuxième tome bien plus intéressant que le premier.
